    Finding a specific message in the Canvas Inbox is a difficult task due to the lack of a search feature. This is compounded for instructors of large courses, who may have thousands of students over the course of just a single academic year. 

     

    This is not a new request, but all previous feature requests around this topic have been archived:

     

    Keyword Search in Inbox 

    Text search in conversations 

    Searchable Inbox 

    Search email by topic or content 

    Search email by keyword 

     

    Because this issue has such a disproportionate impact on instructors of large courses -- who have a large number of inbox messages -- there may be some alignment between this ongoing need and the Instructure Priority: Teaching & Learning at Scale initiative.
